Coffee & Conversation

Coffee & Conversation is exactly what it sounds like.  The Butterfly Society invites women to participate in community dialogue about issues women of color regularly face in the community.  Sit back, grab a piping hot cup of coffee and lets chat!



Every 4 seconds, someone is being abused by their intimate partner.  We don't just recognize DV during the month of October.  #DV365 is a grass roots style initiative that will allow people to mobilize and organize their friends, family, church members, etc. to start their own campaign to help end domestic violence. Coming soon!
